Dr. Homer Lim is Manila based allopathically trained doctor who earlier worked on geriatrics. Like Lenny DaCosta in Goa, India, he came to realize how pill popping of elderly people has gone out of proportion and it has made him to seek other, less invasive modalities in order to maintain health and quality of life. Nowadays he works at Akesis Holistic Health, a center specialized in holistic therapies. Formerly he used to operate in three different places, one of them being Belle Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness center in San Juan city where I had my visit. I had to update this article a bit after my visit due to changes in his working arrangements, but in this review I focus on my personal experience that time despite being now somewhat outdated location wise. He is giving same treatments in the new location as well.
I was returning from Puerto Galera that is the closest beach destination to Manila, where after few months staying inland in Thailand and Laos I was finally able to dive into the warm ocean waters before getting back to my research. When heading back to downtown I took direct taxi from the bus stop around Buendia to see Dr.Lim. After almost half an hour taxi journey(without traffic jams) I finally reached Belle Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness center that offers other services by other practitioners as well, but I was after bioresonance scanning in order to see how my results compare to earlier scan with Co-Re system in Thailand.
Besides using SCIO system (formerly known as EPFX and QXCI) he has got another gadget simply called “quantum magnetic resonance analyzer/QMRA” from China. Medicomat devices are probably the most advanced onces using same technology. I guess the other manufacturers use their license or something. At least the reports look the same. I did my homework on researching the controversies around the SCIO founder Billy Nelson. I’m left with the impression that the system has improved from it’s earliest stage that was claimed to consist of only box and random number generator into a more informative tool. I saw it came out with some values that were relevant with the results that was also underlined by QMRA device that were pointing to my problems with HPA axis dysregulation and adrenal fatigue causing secondary insomnia. Some of the most important findings was the lack of some essential amino acids such as Lysine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Isoleucine and Histidine. Also problem in pituitary, adrenal and pineal gland function was addressed. As it was so spot on regarding my problems without any relevant data submitted beforehand to give false or artificially skewed results, I must say it can’t be quackery although you can find many bashing “rewiews” of such systems.. Although I would not solely count on it in life threatening situations. In order to have solid diagnosis it may require conventional methods.
In general I was not fully convinced of SCIO’s reliability or the way it was set up and found it being more suitable for scanning mineral and vitamin balances, but overall less helpful in comparison to QMRA / Medicomat device which I really find excellent in getting rough image of potentially underlying causes of imbalances in each organ of our bodies. (Edit: later I found out SCIO can give much better outcome when properly set up like it was at Absolute Health)
Those findings with QMRA led me to look into amino acid supplements like this Now Foods Amino-9 Essentials Powder and Blue Vervain and California Poppy herbal extracts for calming nerves. I can recommend QMRA and Medicomat devices even for home users. From the most top end sets that costs little under 2500 USD including laptop down to affordable portable electronic acupuncture devices for every layman to use without medical practitioner or steep learning curve on different functions, like this and this that goes around 165-175 USD. I have not tested those portable devices, but if they use the same core technology in scanning algorithm as the more comprehensive models, I would say they are real deals. I will review one of those as soon as I can. Some models can be found also in Amazon.
As I wrote in the Philippines introduction, Dr.Lim used to work also at The Farm at San Benito between 2010-2015 where he was responsible establishing some of the anti-aging therapies the center is famous for. It’s a posh holistic detox resort two hours drive from Manila on the way to Batangas pier that serves as dock for going to Puerto Galera.
I paid 2000 PHP for consultation, SCIO, QMRA scannings and some ear acupuncture in total, which is about 40 Euros and 44USD. Currently Akesis Holistic Healing does not offer ozone treatments, but for instance intravenous C-vitamin and weight loss infusions, live blood analysis, acupuncture, IV laser therapy and other energy healing modalities.

As with Bengaluru, India, there is no separate Food and Shelter section for Philippines yet as it requires more reviews. However, both places, Dr. Teena Fabellas’ and Dr. Homer Lim’s offices are at considerable distance from Malate district that is the budget accommodation area in Manila. Therefore I suggest looking for a place elsewhere as Malate has also gone down in every sense since it’s former, more glorious days and many avoid it. I stayed only in Malate where I paid 700 PHP per night for a single room(shared bathroom) at Wanderers guest house which was the most affordable I could find. But it is really a place for only 1-3 nights.
After all a downtown of big city like Manila is not the place to stay for long if you want to get holistic and integrative therapies effectively done unless you stay somewhere in the suburbs. But to get scanned and visit few times it’s fine. And it gets costly if staying in hotel for too long. For 1-2 months therapy I recommend renting service appartment. San Juan city and Wack-Wack greenhills area is more convenient and peaceful, and the big park is nearby for fresh air. Here are some condos around the area and this page that gathers expat rentals has some good deals available. Maybe the most convenient place to stay is The Garden Heights Condominium in that same building where Akesis Holistic Health is located. It may fit to any budget, but is somewhat worn out according to reviews.
Food in Philippines has it’s own distinctive flavor. Personally I’m not so keen on the grill and barbecue stuff that seemed to be popular, but for instance as breakfast you may get smoked salty fish(Tinapa), bacon(Tocino) with eggs and rice. I found it pretty delicious combo and it easily becomes paleo or low-carb dish if you just leave rice out and substitute it with some veggies such as eggplant, malabar spinach or moringa etc.
